(? - ) US author who also signs his name Thomas Sweterlitsch; he began to publish work of genre interest with "The Disposable Man" in Something Wicked SF and Horror Magazine for February 2012, a Satire on post 9/11 American Politics. Tomorrow and Tomorrow (2015) is set mostly in a Virtual Reality Keep embedded in the Near Future ruins of Pittsburgh, which has been destroyed by an unknown Disaster; the tale focuses on its protagonist's noirish search to decipher the mystery of his family's death. The Gone World (2018) more complexly sets a somewhat similar search for family roots buried in the past into a Time Travel context. A missing Navy SEAL (Sea, Air and Land) turns out to be an astronaut whose Spaceship, lost in "Deep Time", may be jostling the future into different tracks, with the End of the World a likely outcome of the temporal disturbance.
